I made a big dent in my apple pie quilt project today. All of the apples have now been appliqued onto the border. I now have to decide what color to make the binding... whether I will repeat the red from the first border or pick up the green color from the darker leaves. That is probably not an option because I am quite sure there isn't enough left. Actually the quilting will have to be considered before the binding gets applied, but once I start the quilting, I'm going to be ready to finish the quilt, so knowing what fabric I will be using for the binding really does come before I begin quilting.
